ExBEERience the Dark Side


Some things only get better with age. Beer, it just so happens, is one of them. Join other specialty beer lovers and sample from a collection of rare and limited beverages. Expect the unexpected as you walk the floor, encountering beers aged in a wide variety of barrels - whiskey, wine, and others - each of them creating surprising and sometimes unpredictable flavors.

Over 80 types of barrel aged beer will be available, many of them special or secret recipes that highlight the complex, often surprising, always interesting flavors brought out by aging beers in previously used barrels. Coming straight from some of these brewer’s cellars, you won’t see many of these beers available outside of their respective breweries, and most of them won’t be bottled, either, so our Barrel Aged Beer Bash might be your only chance to try some of them! You’ll get a special, commemorative glass at the festival, so get ready to sample from some truly outrageous brews.
